We’re proud to have the choirs represent the largest activity or club at Wahlert Catholic, taken part in a number of national and even international tours, and are excited to continue growing in the years to come.

Hello! I am Denise Grant, principal of Resurrection Elementary. A native “Hoosier,” I have known I wanted to be an educator since third grade. I received my undergraduate degree in Deaf Education from Ball State University in Muncie, IN, and moved to Iowa. Later, I went to the University of Iowa for an Elementary Education endorsement, then obtained an MA in Elementary Administration from Loras College. My experience includes teaching hearing-impaired students and grades 3, 4 and 5. I have been a principal for about 14 years!

My husband, Mike, and I have three children. My hobbies are snow skiing, swimming, watching football and reading, and Mike and I love to travel.

I am very honored to serve as principal of Resurrection Elementary, a National Blue Ribbon School. It is a joy to partner with our staff, parents, and community to provide a faith-filled and engaging educational experience which challenges our students to reach their full potential.

I am also the Activities Director at Mazzuchelli as well as the head coach for Men’s Track & Field at Wahlert. I taught English at Wahlert, beginning in 1994, and had prior teaching/coaching positions at Bishop Garrigan High School (Algona, IA) and Calamus-Wheatland (IA) Jr.-Sr. High School. I earned my Masters’ Degree in Secondary Administration from Loras College. My wife, Becky, has taught Spanish at Wahlert since 2004. Our three children, Eric, Matt, and Anna, obtained their entire undergraduate education in the Holy Family Catholic School system.

As an alum of the Holy Family system, I am so excited to be back as a teacher! As a student, I attended Resurrection, Mazzuchelli, and Wahlert. In May of 2017, I graduated from Clarke University with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Special Education and Reading. I spent the next year co-teaching at Bryant Elementary School as part of Clarke’s 4+1 program. In May of 2018, I graduated with my Master of Arts in Education degree with a focus on Instructional Leadership. In my classroom, I engage students using active learning protocols. I also work on building a growth mindset with my students by discussing the power of YET! In my free time, I enjoy reading and watching anything historical fiction, as well as baking new recipes I see on The Great British Bakeoff.

I have been blessed to be the Resource Teacher at Resurrection since 2013. I love what I do! I recently completed my Masters in Special Education and I am thrilled to have the knowledge and experience to more effectively help students who struggle with school. I’m amazed by how hard I see students working to “get it”, and witnessing the moments when new learning clicks are what inspires me to do my best for my students! I also love spending time with my family, traveling, and cheering on the Packers, Cubs, and Hawkeyes! An interesting fact about me is that I like to bowhunt!

Originally from Dubuque, I am thankful to be teaching in the community in which I was raised and enjoy sharing my love for this beautiful tri-state area with my students. I have also been fortunate to teach and live in the Milwaukee area, which has opened my eyes to the blessings that this close-knit Wahlert community is fortunate to share. My husband, Sean, and I also work with Convivium Urban Farmstead to support their mission of creating community around food, along with our efforts to repurpose unused land into a shared garden space. My personal passion of protecting our shared home translates into both my teaching and personal life, and I love sharing that with my students in the hopes that they learn to share a portion of that passion.

This year marks my 30th year of teaching both in the public and private schools in Iowa and Wisconsin. I have taught at middle school and in the subject area of English, but the majority of my experience has been in high school and in the area of Spanish. I absolutely love being with the students and helping them on their way to life-long learning.

I’ve been an assistant coach for the girls’ tennis team here at Wahlert for two years and in charge of our knitting club. All are welcome even if you’ve never picked up a racket before nor knitting needles. We have enthusiasm and the love of the game for tennis and the passion and a desire to help others in need by donating what we make, whether it be scarves, hats, baby blankets or the like.

Finally, I have been privileged to take students to Spain on 8 different occasions. My favorite part is to see Spain through their eyes for the first time. In 12 days time, they become wiser and their minds are opened to a whole new world and a whole different way of living. The bonds they form with their travel mates and the culture and language authentizes their learning in the classroom and increases their skills by leaps and bounds.

Most importantly, I am truly lucky to have my husband Jim and my two grown sons, Michael and Nathan. They are the center and balance in my life and they make me feel loved and safe. Without my family and my faith in God, I would be lost.

Out of the five schools I’ve taught at, and I mean this sincerely, I’ve never felt so strongly bonded to our community of teachers and staff and what we offer both academically and spiritually to our students. We are always striving to do better for them.

I am a recent graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where I studied Biology and Secondary Education. I also moved to Dubuque this summer from my hometown of Verona, Wisconsin. My professional interests include the study of environmental issues that also have social implications, as well as advocating for the socioemotional and mental health of students. In my free time, I find joy in playing ultimate frisbee for a mixed club team based out of Madison, WI, reading, napping, and playing guitar. I’m excited to start my career as an educator here at Wahlert Catholic!

Hi, my name is Rhonda Koppes. I am married to John and have two daughters. Kayla is a full-time nurse with her BSN working at Midwest Medical and at Mercy. She is married to Luke Wilson. Kelli is beginning her second year of teaching in East Dubuque. I began teaching at St. Columbkille School in 1985 after graduating from Loras College. I have been here in different grade levels ever since. Currently, I am teaching 3rd grade. I also coach 7th-grade girls’ volleyball and basketball at Mazzuchelli Middle School. I enjoy reading, walking and spending time with my family and friends. Teaching is a profession that I love to do. I hope I can be an inspiration for the many young minds that I work with every day.

Hello! Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is Ms. Cesarek and I am one of the 3rd-grade teachers at St. Columbkille. I graduated from Loras College in 2015 and I was born and raised in the small town of Rock Falls, Illinois. I was brought up in Catholic schools just like you are right now. I enjoy running, playing sports, and baking. My faith, family, friends, and education mean the world to me and inspire me to become a better person each and every day. My end goal as your teacher is to guide you to have a passion for learning and bring you to know and love Christ.
